Predikarens bibelreferenser


This plugin uses the servers and a modified version of their javascript Bible ref tagger, which is provided publically here. Usage is encouraged for anyone on their websites here and more specifically, under this section.

This hereby complies to the WP requirement of having specific permission to use links to other sites. The reason for creating this plugin was to allow WP users who speak Swedish to also make references to the Bible in Swedish, since simple cutting and pasting js code into a main theme footer for example is not advisable on a WP site. Now a WP-admin/blogger, can just activate the feature through this plugin instead.

The current version uses Svenska folkbibeln 2015, but plans are there to make other versions selectable also, as more people get exposed to this plugin.


  • Pop-up anywhere inside a paragraph, list etc.
  • Pop-up of several verses.
  • Pop-up of specifically Swedish references with Scandinavian characters.


  1. Upload the folder ‚Äúpredikaren” to the “/wp-content/plugins/” directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the “Plugins” menu in WordPress.


Why was this plugin developed?

Adding Bible references to your texts is a great idea. The reftagger of Bible Gateway is splendid. The only problem is, that it does not work on WordPress, and is not responsive. Also, plugins that work roughly the same way are geared towards an English speaking audience. This plugin wants to reach Swedish speaking bloggers and webpages, who want to spice up their texts with direct quotes from Svenska Folkbibeln 2015, in easily seen tooltips.
